    I had to take Endone for 6 weeks.
    I never even take a Panadol usually ☹️
    Then after 6 weeks I turned a corner!
    Patience is not my strong suit .
    My breast cancer surgeon said to be patient and that everyone is different.
    I was in a dark place at the time but 18 months on it’s a distant memory 😊

    Hello dear sister. I have swollen lumps all over my breast, did you experience this?

    The swelling is nearly to my collarbone, should I be concerned?

    Hi Cora, the pain is bad for a few days but usually well controlled with pain killers such as Endone. If you have a drain in,there shouldn’t be a lot of swelling. You should get it checked out.
